The Work of Filmmakers Mark & Angela Walley

Walley Residency

Walley Residency is an annual month-long residency program hosted by filmmakers Mark and Angela Walley. Each year an artist is invited to live and work in our home studio. The artist is given a private studio space and access to our resources in video, photography, web design, and professional development. We value collaboration with the artists and offer our creative and technical support throughout their residency. #WalleyResidency

Marisa Finos

2017 Walley Residency Artist
Marisa Finos is a sculptor and multimedia artist currently based in Massachusetts. Finos sees clay and other materials as an extension of her own body, and her performances seek to explore thresholds of consciousness, body, and space. Her work draws inspiration from her own reflections on the experience of death and dying in contemporary culture, and serves as a platform to engage in conversations that challenge current attitudes about mortality.

“My time at the Walley Residency was valuable beyond words. This opportunity provided me the time and mental space to focus on works that had been on hold for years. With the help of the Walley's, I was able to resolve multiple unfinished projects, navigate complex narratives in my work, create a new website, and gain a better understanding of how to improve my work in the future. I am forever grateful for their time, talent, grace, and patience. For the first time, I feel confident professionally showcasing my new works and sharing my mission as an artist.” 
- Marisa Finos, Fall 2017
